Dodd currently averages 24 points, 16 rebounds and six blocks for the 18-4 Lions, the top-seeded team in the Class 2A District VIII playoffs. Queen Anne’s is off this week, and will face the winner of Wicomico and North Caroline on Tuesday. Becraft said his squad has “as good a shot as anybody” at making it all the way to Comcast Center for the state semifinals, potentially giving Dodd a chance to play on his future homecourt.
Dodd said he’s not sure what role he’ll play for the Terps next season. While Becraft had heard some chatter that Maryland wanted Dodd to do a prep year or redshirt, that doesn’t necessarily seem to be the case.
“Right now, they’re still kind of open-ended. They definitely want him in next year,” Becraft said. “There was some talk about maybe a prep year and possibly a redshirt. That truly hasn’t been decided yet. There’s not a whole lot of pressure for him to come in and contribute a whole lot right away. Down the road, they basically see him as a power forward kind of a guy – a 4 who can play both in and out, face the bucket and play with his back to the bucket. They’re looking at that right now, keeping it open. Next year it’s still to be decided.”
